Improvement of quality of life

Improvement of quality of life

Patients receiving ELOCTA individualised prophylaxis in A-LONG reported a significant improvement in QoL at Week 28 after switching from standard half-life rFVIII: –3.2 total score (P=0.0336)*,2

Improvements in Haem-A-QoL were maintained over 24 months of follow-up in the ASPIRE extension trial: –3.2 total score (P≤0.01)*,1

87% of A-LONG/Kids A-LONG subjects reported more or the same amount of physical activity over the course of the studies while maintaining or lowering ABRs*,1

  • Changes in physical activity were noted across all age groups1
  • Physical activity can improve joint, bone and muscle health in people with haemophilia2

ELOCTA® supports physical activity, a core part of an active life without restrictions1

*Supplemental rFVIII dosing prior to physical activity was not permitted during the study.1

ELOCTA® may allow up to a 50% reduction in annual injections*,1


99% of patients needed fewer injections vs standard half-life rFVIII (post-hoc analysis of A-LONG; n=79/80)†,‡,§,1

  • Most patients could reduce to one injection per week compared to previous SHL FVIII regimens and were injecting ELOCTA twice weekly, 30% of patients achieved a dosing interval of 5 days1

ELOCTA can offer a lower burden treatment schedule compared to previous therapy to help liberate the lives of PwH1

PwH, people with haemophilia; rFVIII, recombinant Factor VIII.

*15/65 patients went from 3 injections/week to 1.4 injections/week (a 53% reduction).1
All subjects in the individualised prophylaxis arm of the A-LONG study started on a twice-weekly prophylactic regimen (25 IU/kg on day 1 and 50 IU/kg on day 4; total weekly dose, 75 IU/kg per week), with subsequent dose and interval adjustments based on individual pharmacokinetic information and bleeding.1
One subject reported a pre-study FVIII regimen of 12 IU/kg twice weekly, began the study on the initial twice-weekly ELOCTA regimen, and ended the study on a regimen of 30 IU/kg every 3 days; VWF: Ag level at baseline was 160; pre-study bleeding rate was 42.0; overall on-study ABR was 7.5; ABR in the last 3 months on-study was 0.0.1
